Fire broke out in an Waynedale apartment building mid-morning Wednesday.
Fire crews were called around 11:15 a.m. to an apartment at 1817 Woodhaven Drive, in the Winchester Woods apartment complex. When they arrived, smoke was coming from a first floor apartment.
One person inside that apartment was alerted by a smoke detector and escaped before firefighters arrived. Four people were able to get out safely before fire crews arrived. Two people and a dog were rescued from a second floor balcony.
The damage appeared to be in the second level of the building, where smoke could be seen rising. Firefighters were using a ladder to access a balcony. The fire was under control in under 15 minutes.
The cause of the fire is unknown.
